In 5 sleeps I'm going on holiday with my 10 year old son and my middle daughter who will turn 21 years old while we're away.
My daughter will be sorting herself out, and we'll be meeting at Glasgow airport on Friday.
Today...a full 5 days before the event I started freaking out about all the stuff I have to do! All the stuff?
Make sure I have the tickets, passports, money, some clothes, toiletries. Then there's the bit before I go...water the plants, turn off the heating, give the neighbours any perishable foods I have left.
STOP! Wait a minute! Other than the tickets, passports & money there really is nothing else I actually need to remember to take. Also, as far as the things I need to do before I leave, of course it would be good if I could remember to switch off the heating before I go, both for environmental and cost reasons, but ultimately it wouldn't be the end of the world if I forgot to do everything on that "before I leave" list.
I need to go and write a list, that will quieten down my headmind and help me stay grounded and realise there is nothing to worry about!
When we let headmind take hold it really can run riot and have us going into panic mode as we lose our connection to being grounded in this moment NOW!
